One of the cooler things to come out of skiing was the art. When i started out on the slopes as a grom and then later snowboarding in the 80's there used to be classic posters that gave a glimpse into the heyday of skiing and the apres mountain lifestyle. Now the crew over at UNIV and Dave Lee's wonderful Signal Snowboards are pulling together a little bit of the old and a little bit of the new. The end result is pretty righteous
"UNIV is pleased to announce a snowboard collaboration with Signal Snowboards. Manufactured in partnership at Signal’s “The Lodge” Factory in California, USA.
The board is 155 cm long with a waist of 24.6 cm and effective edge of 118 cm. The board has a soft flex, poplar/aspen blend Hyper-core, biaxle glass weave, carbon stringer, twin shape, centered stance, Duel-Independent sidecut, and sintered base. The UNIV and Signal snowboard is built as a more medium flex park board made to handle large jumps and high speed landings."
Sounds good to me...
